As the tax payers of the Rock Koshkonong Lake District receive their property tax bills this month, they may notice a different format for the tax responsibility of the RKLD property owners. At the August annual meeting, RKLD electors voted in favor of a levy instead of the special fee for those tax responsibilities. The electors also voted in favor of a borrowing resolution to fund the addition of six slide gates at Indianford Dam to help mitigate flooding issues and be in compliance with Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources 2020 directives. The RKLD operations budget is slightly smaller than years past due to lower wide ranging legal and engineering costs. The levy format based on value is widely used by local, county/city governments, school districts, vocational schools and is a fairer tax or fee than a special charge used in the past. Other local lake districts also use a levy format for tax responsibilities.
Feel free to contact the RKLD Board using the form below if you have any questions.
Thank You, Alan Sweeney RKLD
